A few weeks ago, I arrived at work to find this on my desk:

A Gift of Honey

How cool is that?! Check out the honeycomb and everything:


My friend’s father acquired his own beehive a few months back and this is from their first honey harvest this year. I’m not sure of the exact stats but I think this is one of about 50 jars that was produced – that’s a lot of honey!

I’ve not yet attacked the honeycomb but the honey itself is very tasty and surprisingly, not too sweet. I’ve been taking teaspoonfuls of it! Lately, I’ve been mixing it with some lemon and hot water for a nice soothing drink for my sore throat.

Thank you for the lovely gift, Rachel!
